Doubt

Accountancy

answered on 26-Feb-20 17:54

On 1st jan provision for doubtful debts existed at 40,000.Trade receivables on 31-12-17 were 15,00,000;bad debts totalled 1,00,0000.it is required to write off the bad debts and create a provision equal to 5% of trade receivables balances. In the above problem when we create provision for bad debts account why we enter open balance of provision for doubtful debts in credit side of provision account. Can any one suggest me so that it would be helpful

latest answer

When the amount is not recoverable we call it bad debt and reduce it from debtors. Bad Debts A/c Dr. [This is ultimately transferred to P&L] To Trade Receivables/Sundry Debtors [Here actual balance in debtor is being reduced] What is a provision for bad debt? Basically , the business is keeping aside some amount to take care of bad debts which might arise in future. Say Current debtors are 1,00,000 and the company expects 5% will not pay (based on past experience). For this the company would make a provision of Rs.5,000. Here the company would not credit the debtors by 5,000 (as we do in case of actual bad debt) because the debtors is not yet bad. So for this we create a provision (set aside amount from profits). Profit & Loss Dr. To Provision for bad debt (This will always be a credit balance) Now in next year say 0,000 of debtors became bad. Bad Debts Dr. 9,000 To Debtors 9,000 Now the bad debt is an expense which has to be transferred to P&L. Out of 9,000 , 5,000 was already provided last year. So we will use that provision now. Dr. Provision for bad debt 5,000 Dr. Profit & Loss 4,000 (for balance ) Cr. Bad debts 9,000. For any new provision to be created, similar entries as passed earlier. [These are actual entries - In exams we can combine and pass entries]

Dividend Declared treatment in financial statement

Accountancy

answered on 26-Feb-20 17:57

Dividend declared means declared by the shareholders in annual general meeting. And AGM happens after the financial statement gets approved by board & gets audited by auditor And we prepare financial statement on 31st March Then how dividend Declared can be accounted in that financial year ?

latest answer

Dividends declared on AGM (Say in September 2019) will be accounted as dividend in financial year 2019-20. The concept of provision for dividend no longer exists. Dividend is accounted only when approved - by BOD in case of interim dividends and by Shareholders in AGM in case of Final dividend.
